WINS and KPI Sign Agreement on Nuclear Security Education and Research

WINS and Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (KPI) have signed a protocol of intention aimed at strengthening and enhancing the knowledge and research capacity of teachers and students at KPI in the field of nuclear security.

Under the agreement, WINS and KPI will look at collaborating on educational and research activities.

“Cooperating with WINS will allow us to offer KPI faculty and students valuable opportunities to enhance their understanding of nuclear security,” said Tymofii Bibik, Associate Professor at KPI.

“The field of nuclear security is constantly evolving, and international cooperation can help to enhance our collective understanding,” said Ivan Ostapenko, Professor Assistant at KPI.

“The brave Ukrainian people, and especially experts in the nuclear field, need support more than ever and, most importantly, to continue not only to perform their duties, but also to develop professionally,” said Anastasiia Nechytailo, Women in Nuclear Ukraine Vice President.

“With all that is happening in Ukraine, WINS is extremely honoured and pleased to be working in close collaboration with KPI and the support of subject matter experts from Ukraine and Women in Nuclear Ukraine. We are all committed to help build capability and competencies for the future in the region,” Roland Fletcher, head of the WINS Academy, said.

This agreement builds on WINS’ previous efforts to enhance nuclear and radioactive source security in Ukraine, such as offering the WINS Academy Radioactive Source Security Management module in the Ukrainian language with mentoring support from KPI and subject matter experts from Ukraine. WINS and KPI are also starting the development of a complementary introductory Radioactive Source Security Management training course.
